I had a nestingish sort of Monday. There was a good deal of dust to be gotten rid of and tired corners to be rearranged. I moved my plants so that they could sit in the one place where they can get all the good light they need and that I see often enough to notice when they get dry. :) That same window in my kitchen got a spot of color, too, from these butterflies that I taped up. I love the beauty of stained glass, and someday would love to have some bits hanging in my windows, but for now these Dover coloring book pages will work very nicely. I do like a bit of coloring with crayons! There is more housework to be done (as always!) but these corners are giving me the energy to do the rest. :)

Ooh, this is a feast for the eyes, Kat! This must be enough beauty energy to propel the cleaning machine for a good bit!

Love the orange in the l.r.--and the peppers in the pottery jar? darling.

Love-

What can I say? I thoroughly love & enjoy your blog!
Pictures and stories of your dear baby girl and your husband, glimpes of your glorious house... it's almost too much. :)
Keep doing what you're doing: making life lovely and liveable at your own home and showing and telling of it here.

Clean corners do have a motivating influence! I've been doing the same thing as I've been getting ready for my party. Clean windows and curtains, mended clothes, sparkly stove... ahh! If only I'd remember that feeling during those less than motivating times;o) Hee! I like your new curtain by the way!

Ah-ha...I took a closer look at the books laying down sidewise and recognize my old and dear friends, Freckles and the Harvester! That makes me smile.
